Somethings are better done by men

I am a feminist but where
Strength and expertise are needed some things are just better done by men .
Firemen for example
I think they should be men .
Policemen on the beat
When I see a petite little WPC ( if I see ANY PC on the beat which hasn't been for years ) u less she is well armed with a gazer what is she supposed to do if dealing with violent thugs ?

I wish I had the strength of man. Most do things effortlessly.

Re: Somethings are better done by men

A strange thread for a feminist. I think women can do as good a job as men in the police, fire service and the military.

I am a petite 5' 2.5", but can pack a punch if need be. I have mentioned the time, a good number of years ago, I was shopping in a local town when I came across a crowd of yobs tormenting the local bag lady. I waded in and told them to leave her alone, or else. (I hadn't worked out the, 'or else!') However, I must have scared them, as with a few choice words they ran away.

Now I await the comments about my appearance.

Police Woman might be small and petite but they have to undergo training and be able to look after themselves, so I have nothing against Women doing these jobs.

Re: Somethings are better done by men

Female PC's and Fireman have the same training as their male counterparts so I cant see a problem

Also quite often a woman is more easily able to defuse a difficult situation without resorting to violence

Re: Somethings are better done by men

I think women do a good job in the police force and are better than men at certain things. When tackling thugs though, it might be better to use only men, although the women have gone through the same training in self defence. I also don't have a problem with women in the fire service tbh.

What I don't approve of is women elevated to top levels just because they are women.
